Vanilla Cupcakes


Yesterday i made my favorite vanilla cupcakes:) It is quite hard to find a good cupcake recipe without the cupcakes coming out as "sugar bombs". The one I use is from the Hummingbird Bakery book 
and it is simply delicious!

Tip 1: always have your ingredients at room temperature 
Tip 2: always sift the flour (for the batter) and the icing sugar (for the icing) so you don't get any lumps
Tip 3: for a fluffy buttercream icing beat the mixture for at least 3 minutes


*Preparing the ingredients*

*I use Tahitian vanilla pods*

*The most common recipe of cupcakes starts by creaming the butter and the sugar together. Hummingbird mixes all the dry ingredients first and than incorporates the eggs and milk*

*Sifting the icing sugar to make the buttercream icing*

*Finger-lickin good buttercream icing :p *

*I like to put the icing with a spatula instead of using a piping bag*

*Sprinkle some edible glitter for a touch of sparkle :)*
